    What now?

    So, I just finished Meso 2 and since there is no tower yet and I had difficulty with bench pressing my full % of weights on bench presses, I'm going to put off Meso 3 until the tower is here. I'm guessing at least another 6 weeks... so I need others' thoughts/opinions. I'm thinking of doing...

    LONG rant - Brother is getting a dog and he SHOULDN'T!!

    Hi everyone - just needed to vent. My brother and his family (wife and two kids) are adopting a cane corso mastiff. I just looked this dog up on the "net" ... NOT a good dog for them. Actually, NO dog is good for them as they are so self-centered and don't have what it takes to care for a...

    Meso 2 Legs - OUCHIE!

    Hi all. Did my first M2 leg workout yesterday ... going into it, I knew it wasn't going to be "a walk in the park", but man oh man, by the end I was shouting some really mean things at Cathe.

    Ab Circuits - Weights & Plates

    Tried this for the first time yesterday and loved it... although I have lots of work to do when it comes to the plates!! I couldn't do all the reps on the plates and couldn't do the straight leg pull in things... I'm going to try again later in the week. Tomorrow is yoga abs... That's my favorite.
